L&Q brings London Living Rent homes to Hendon
Ideally positioned in one of North London's best-connected areas, Rookery Grove offers a brand-new collection of 38 London Living Rent (LLR) homes, with monthly rents roughly 40% lower than the average in the borough.
With prices starting from just £949.82 per month, L&Q is launching a broad range of modern homes, from studios as well as one- and two-bedroom apartments, with the new development combining the best of urban living with city connections.
Andrea Palmer, Head of LLR at L&Q comments,
“London Living Rent makes saving while renting a real possibility in the capital – bringing home ownership even closer for many who felt that buying in London was out of their reach financially.
“We’ve seen huge interest in our recent developments launching in Barking & Dagenham and Croydon, and with a great array of local amenities and high-quality homes coupled with fantastic transport connections, we’re confident Rookery Grove will hold a similar appeal.”
Funded by the Mayor of London, London Living Rent is a Government-backed scheme which enables tenants to rent a home at a discounted rate – sometimes up to as much as 50% less than a similar property on the open market. It acts as a steppingstone to homeownership, as the extra saving made each month on rent can be put towards a deposit for your first home.
Residents moving to Rookery Grove are set to benefit from vast investment into the local area. The development is situated within the Brent Cross Cricklewood scheme, one of the biggest regeneration projects in Europe, which will see 150 retail stores, 50 restaurants, cinema and hotel delivered nearby alongside new residential quarters. L&Q’s homes are set back behind a new landscaped piazza, which is home to the Hendon Hub and offers a number of commercial spaces.
Homes at Rookery Grove are contemporary in style, with large living areas and an impressive specification. Open-plan kitchen/ living/ dining rooms have been thoughtfully designed with modern living in mind, allowing flexibility and tenants to use the space for both working from home requirements and entertaining. The homes comply with the latest environmental standards which includes floor heating, energy efficient LED lighting, and excellent sound insulation. Meeting the ever-increasing demand for outdoor space, each apartment comes with a private balcony.
More than just a transport hub, Hendon itself has a vibrant local feel. The bustling streets are home to a wealth of cafes, retail facilities and multi-cultural restaurants and bars. Nearby Brent Cross shopping centre is home to over 120 stores, from high street names to major brands including Apple, Hugo Boss and Tesla. For conveniences closer to home, a large Sainsbury’s is located on the doorstep of the development.
Rookery Grove residents are well-catered for when it comes to outdoor areas. The neighbourhood is renowned for being home to plenty of green spaces, including Rushgroves Park, a hidden local gem. The nature reserve of Brent Reservoir is less than ten minutes from Rookery Grove, offering an oasis of tranquillity amongst the buzz of the city. Known locally as the Welsh Harp, the reservoir offers opportunities for scenic walks, and a wide range of outdoor leisure activities. Hampstead Heath, famous for its majestic views of the London skyline, woodland wildlife and open water swimming, is also a half hour cycle – or just a short bus ride away.
A major draw of the area, Rookery Grove benefits from excellent transport links including two Northern line stations, Hendon Central and Colindale both within walking distance. Meanwhile, nearby Hendon Railway Station offers ThamesLink services with speedy journeys into Central London as well as to Luton and Gatwick Airports, putting both nights out in the capital and city breaks further afield within reach.
Prices for L&Q’s London Living Rent homes at Rookery Grove start from just £949.82 per month for a studio.
